Floating in Space

You and your crew are exploring strange new worlds and going places where no one has gone before. All is fine as stars, planets, nebulae, and black holes pass by leaving an echo in your wake. You are cruising at Spinal Tap Warp 11. Suddenly you enter unexplored deep space and an eerie feeling comes over you and your crew, like someone is watching you, Is it really happening or just a weird felling? Are they in danger.? Will your spaceship and crew survive? Or are they doomed? I don't know, I write the music not the screenplay!

David Snyder inspired my with his last song featuring the Synthmaster 2 VSTi. While conversing via email with David I said that I would like to try something like that but I wouldn't want to step on his toes. He said no problem just do it. So I did! Thanx David!

BiaB style = Pat M 2 - Ambient Latin
Tempo = 50 BPM

I deleted the drums
Bass - Synthmaster 2 - preset - B5 Mini Korg Hollow RL
Utility track - Synthmaster 2 - preset - Pad Summer AZ
Strings - EastWest Symphonic Choir - preset - Full Choir
Piano - Synthmaster One - preset - Black Celebration BT

I am playing my el-cheapo $69 Kramer Focus 111S strat in my Stompboard VST amp simulator set in clean 1 mode. I am also playing via my keyboard controller the Theremin.

As always all comments are welcomed.


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.
Cop, that's not how field sobriety tests work.

Nice vibe with this, Mario, the synth with the guitar on top work really well together.

"cruising at Spinal Tap Warp 11", LOL! I love that movie, need to watch it again soon I think.

It sounds like a movie soundtrack. I closed my eyes and I just drifted out into the Galaxy. I think you tapped into the frequencies of the universe.
Nice mix and production.

Thanx J&B. Playing a wedding bands for many years has exposed me to many genres of music. I'm just experimenting trying to expand that knowledge.

Hi, Mario.

Ha! Even having some clue what was coming, I wasn't expecting that.

It's cool to hear people doing interesting stuff on this board.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Great experiment, Mario! You left your comfort zone right into a new comfort zone with the synth. Loved the guitar fills in this spooky creation.

Very cinematic. The theremin sound is very evocative. Nice guitar throughout.

Thanx so much Dewey. I wouldn't say that I am comfortable in the synth-zone yet. I have a long way to go before I am comfortable.

Mario,
Pretty cool soundscape you have painted. Deep meditational tones. I think what might be cool if some ethnic rhythm is added. Something like sparse Udu drum or even jaw harp smile Thank you for sharing.

Misha.

This is really good Mario. Loved the mix. Perfect for the guitar and synths. Super wide and spacious. Guitar was excellent.

Very cool. The only thing I'd offer is that the guitar is aggressive on its attack...maybe a super fast compressor is needed to push down the attack and the release to allow the note to sound through.


Cheers

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
